In the current knowledge economy era, knowledge has become an organization’s primary resource due to the fact that an organization is an extension of an information society. Therefore, firms that are able to effectively manage their knowledge resources can expect to reap a wide range of benefits. Due to the diversity of organizational culture (which include results-oriented, tightly controlled, job-oriented, closed system, solidarity, sociability and need for achievement), a significant issue is the way organizational culture impacts on KM intention in the KM process through the mediation of KM culture. Indeed, strong culture has a direct impact on KM culture and KM intention. This paper details our study findings, which indicate that while results-oriented, solidarity, sociability and strong cultures have significant positive effects on an organization’s ability to foster a KM culture in the KM process, a job-oriented culture has a significant negative effect. Moreover, both KM culture and strong culture have positive direct effects on an individual’s intention to manage knowledge. Also discussed in this paper are the implications of the study and its contribution to research and management practice.
